COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN -- With the Idaho football team making the 8-mile drive to Pullman later this week (someone else will be driving, but you get the point), WSU begins its week with the usual press conferences and a day off from practice. We begin it as usual, too. With links 'n such.

...

--- Our story in today's newspaper covers WSU's gaudy defensive statistics through its first three games.

--- You can look at those numbers in more depth in this blog post.

--- WSU defensive coordinator Mike Breske took an early look at Idaho in this blog post.

--- This is where the we-don't-discuss-injuries policy becomes most problematic.

--- Arizona's players are gaining confidence by beating the heck out of teams much worse than them.

--- The controversial finish to Arizona State's win over Wisconsin is ruling the conversation about that game.

--- Washington's running back leads the nation in rushing, but he doesn't seem to care.

--- UCLA honored teammate Nick Pasquale on Sunday. Pasquale was killed after being struck by a vehicle last weekend.

--- USC's defense could be challenged by Utah State.

--- Oregon State's defensive players are defending their defensive coordinator.

--- Utah is trying to move on from its emotional loss to the Beavers.

--- Stanford stayed at No. 5 in the AP poll. Oregon is still No. 2, UCLA moved up to No. 13, UW moved up to No. 17, and ASU slid into the poll at No. 23.

--- Kristoff Williams,  Toni Pole, Connor Halliday and Taylor Taliulu will be available to media later this afternoon.
